Antique Silver Egyptian Ankh Scarab Lotus Earrings Signed Dated 1946
Antique Silver Egyptian Ankh Scarab Lotus Earrings Signed Dated 1946 - 1947. The earrings are in excellent estate condition and ready to wear. They depict an Ankh with a Scarab Beetle inside of them and are topped with a blooming lotus. They are all original with no repairs. They are hallmarked on the hook with the Egyptian hallmark for silver, the lotus and the Arabic date letter for 1946 - 1947 which is the first year they switched from the cat mark to the lotus. They are hallmarked again on the ankh's. I am not sure what the silver purity is. It could be anything from 800 fine to 950. My guess it is 800/1000.
They measures about 1.25 long NOT including the hook and .40" wide. The pair weigh a total of 5.6 grams
